But no trip to the other side of the world is complete without witnessing first-hand the Taupo Volcanic Zone

A very large flux of gold capable of forming the largest known hydrothermal deposits was measured in the fluids of the Taupo Volcanic Zone in New Zealand (Simmons & Brown 2007).

For example, in the Taupo Volcanic Zone of northern New Zealand, the crust is as little as 5 km thick with partially molten material, thought to be the source of the magma, immediately below (Cole et al.
(2005) show that the regions with the greatest extension in the Taupo Volcanic Zone of New Zealand produce active calderas up to 50 km wide that are dominated by felsic magmatism, whereas areas with the greatest transtension produce less active andesitic stratovolcanoes.
Pumice, an effective long-distance rafting vector for hard-bottom, shallow-water, suspension-feeding epibenthos (11), may have served as the transport platform, because very significant quantities of this buoyant material have been released by repeated eruptions of the North Island Taupo Volcanic Zone
since the Pliocene (32).
